Will permanent residents benefit from Obama’s $4,000 college financial aid plan?

He promised the american people that the first $4,000 of college would be free, would permanent residents receive this benefit?
Proposes to create an "American opportunity tax credit," which the Obama campaign describes as "a fully refundable credit" that "will ensure that the first $4,000 of a college education is completely free for most Americans and would cover two-thirds the cost of tuition at the average public college or university."


By the way, I’m a permanent resident myself and I would REALLY love it if I did get $4,000 for my college education. My parents pay taxes, so I think I deserve it.

Trust me, with a $55,000 tuition, any free money is welcome =) Especially since most grants and scholarships don’t go far beyond $1,000
